Bill Description: This bill would ensure that state agencies do not enter into contracts that exceed an agency’s’ funding for that project.

Rating: +1

Does it increase government spending (for objectionable purposes) or debt? Conversely, does it decrease government spending or debt? 


Every state agency is required to go through a competitive bidding process prior to entering into any construction contract. At the conclusion of the bidding process, a contract must be awarded to the “lowest responsible and responsive bidder.” HB 434 would stipulates that all state agencies, when accepting a bid, do not enter into a contract that exceeds the funding that was allocated for such project. This would protect Idaho taxpayers from government agencies exceeding their spending limits and going over budget.
